'Thurlestone' – a new inbound and outbound stop for the m1

Exciting news – new inbound and outbound bus stops on Bamfield, named ‘Thurlestone’, situated near Oatlands Avenue, will come into operation from Sunday 18th September.  There will be no iPoint when they first come into operation, so passengers will need to use Tap on Tap off, the mTickets app, a Travelwest card or a bus pass. iPoints are available at the bus stops at Alverstoke and Paddock Gardens. The full upgrade of the stops should be complete by the end of 2022.
